But all it took was a few magic minutes from the band to make it all worth while. I didn't see Friend of the Devil listed here. I am going to download it in the hopes that it is on here somewhere. As always, it was the people who made The Dead so worthwhile to follow. Remember that in 1985, The Dead was still very much Avante Garde. The culture at large had not discovered The Dead, yet. By 1990, most of the fun was over for The Dead as cultural icons. Some may disagree. But for those of us who followed The Dead through the 80's, The Grateful Dead and their benevolent society of friends was a unique experience that will never be replicated. The 1985 Philly shows were as big of a cultural event as the 80's had to offer. What was great then was that most people didn't know who they were. But they found out. And none of us who were lucky enough to be there will never forget the love that the band and their friends showed to us all. Someday, we will all see Jerry in paradise. He won't be performing, of course. He will just be hanging out with us, remembering how much fun it was. Anyone with Friend of the Devil from the Sunday show (Easter) please email me at email@example.com. Or anyone that would just like to chat. I would love to have that song. As for the concert, I give it about a 7 as shows go. Except for that memorable song. It was a moment that I will never forget. We are coming slowly but surely, Jerry. When we get there, we would love to have a long talk ith you. And thanks. It was always worth the price of admission.

Subject: Jerry had no voice left
Unfortunately, Jerry's voice was just obliterated on this night. It's 100% Froggy Jerry. Listen to "looking for a shove in some direction" during the TLEO. Try not to wince in pain. I'd say Jerry's voice was a determining factor in ending the show with 4 Bobby songs (if you consider NFA a Bob song).
The playing is good, but the vocals are horrible. It's hard to recommend this one to anyone who wasn't there. You gotta be searching for something to want this one....
